Director Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow) has started production on his dystopian sci-fi film called Chaos Walking. Today a photo from the set of the film has been released and it offers us our first look at Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming). As you can see, Ridley is sporting a very different look with her blonde hair.
The movie is based on the book by Patrick Ness and the two actors will be playing the main characters, Todd Hewitt and Viola Eade. The story “follows a guy (Holland) who lives on the distant planet of New World—a new hope for humanity until struck by ‘The Noise,’ a virus which inflicts immersive visions of ones’ every thought. The cacophony drives many mad until Todd makes a hidden, silent discovery: there is a girl named Viola (Ridley) who may be the key to unlocking New World’s many layered secrets. Together, the two unlikely companions are forced on a white-knuckle adventure into an unexplored planet – trying to escape and hide in an environment where all thought is heard, all movement seen –as they both discover the truth about the lives they left behind and the spectacular world they’ve learned to call home.”
The script was written by Ness, Charlie Kaufman Lindsey Beer, Gary Spinelli, and Jamie Linden. The film also stars David Oyelowo and Mads Mikkelson.
Lionsgate will release Chaos Walking on March 1, 2019.
